Great pictures of part of an absolutely priceless collection that demonstrates why Bovington is the best tank museum in the world.
I have a b & w photo of me sitting on top of an M48 outside the museum in 1971. That pretty well decided me on an Army career & five years later, I was at JLR RAC.
A punishment at JLR was to be sent across to the museum on a Sunday to paint one of the exhibits. Although I'm not sure that we painted the correct pattern or even used the correct colours!

Third pic down inside the tank are three metal plate boxes stacked. Weve only just stopped using the same design for first aid kits and detonators on the railway! I have one for keeping my primers in!

Going through another sweep of late father in law's relics before we move next year, being ruthless.

We've found a postcard showing a WW1 "Tank in action Canadian Official" Apparently number 4 in a series. It shows a tank moving across a desolate cratered landscape, most of the tank lost in dust.

Reverse tells me the postcard is The Daily Mirror Canadian Official Series (Photograph passed by Censor)

Real photograph. Printed in Great Britain. Published by the Pictorial Newspaper Co.(1010), Ltd, 23/9 Bouverie Street, London, England. Copyright Reserved.

The photo is nothing special. The card may be of interest. If anyone is interested, PM me your address and I'll post it to you in an envelope. Otherwise, I've got to be ruthless. No takers, it's going in the bin.

Thought this maybe an ideal place to post these pictures from France of the Canadian Autocar...
